Vivienne Sosnowski, editorial director for Clarity Media — the parent company of The Examiner papers — made the announcement Thursday.

Pimentel has been at The Examiner for seven years, working as the sports editor and managing editor before moving to the executive editor position in 2006.

In addition to his new role for the Web sites, Pimentel will continue to serve as executive editor for the San Francisco Examiner.
